Biography from a third party submitted on 11/21/2007:
The artist, Mona Hedin, is a current resident of Phoenix, Arizona.  Hedin has been married for 30 years and has recently become a grandmother for the first time.  One of Hedin's main genres is figurative art, Native American images that are stylized interpretations of native dancers and their regalia.  Hedin uses size to size to evoke the power of her images.

Hedin is also a wildlife artist, having won many awards such as placing second in the Iowa State Duck Stamp Contest, and is actively involved in the Creative Literacy Project, which promotes development of literacy skills in authors of all ages.

Much of Mona Hedin's artistic inspiration comes from her deep spirituality and strong commitment to using her art to create a better world.  Her greatest joy comes from sharing her world view through her art.  She uses a unique and distinctive style that is striking not only in the treatment of the subject but also in the colors she chooses. Characteristics of Hedin's paintings include elusive shadows that create a mystery that surrounds the subject and evokes curiosity about their character, bold and striking color palettes, and capturing the emotion of the subject.

Her Native American images are anything but typical.  Unlike traditional western art, it is often hard to pin down what one is viewing without stepping back and studying the content within the composition.  Hedin demands her work to be dynamic and thus size is essential to convey the power of the pieces.

One of her premier pieces, the one she considers the pinnacle of her career, The Promise, is an iconic interpretation of the Native American prophecy of the White Buffalo Calf Woman.  It took her nine months of labor to create this piece and she experienced mystifying and unexplainable events, each of which would evoke and idea of vision that became part of the painting.
